If your family members suffer from allergies, you know those pesky airborne pollutants can attack at any time. Not sure which allergens to look out for in Clayton, North Carolina? Make sure everyone feels great all season long by avoiding these three summer allergens that could harm your family’s health.


Spring is usually the biggest season for pollen, but grass pollen thrives even through midsummer while ragweed pollen starts appearing in the late summer. It isn’t easy to avoid it outdoors, but you can effectively eliminate this allergen indoors.

At Carolina Comfort Air, we recommend installing a whole-house air purifier, which cleans your home’s air supply every time your HVAC system cycles. In fact, you might be surprised at just how much an air purifier can capture, including tobacco smoke, volatile organic compounds, and more.


Mold and mildew thrive when there’s too much moisture in the air which means humid summer days are prime time for this allergen to grow in Clayton. To limit your exposure to mold indoors, talk with our team about a whole-home dehumidifier. This device works with your HVAC system to reduce moisture in the air and make sure your home doesn’t roll out the welcome mat for mold.

Pet Dander

During the dog days of summer, it’s totally normal to spend most of your day indoors where the air conditioner keeps your home nice and cool. If you have dogs or cats that also spend most of the day indoors, you’re exposing yourself to a lot of pet dander as well.

Rather than enduring days of sniffling and sneezing, make a point of changing your HVAC air filter more often than usual, or at least once a month. If you haven’t scheduled an HVAC tune-up recently, we recommend that you do that, too.
